Good because of what it leaves to the imagination.
There's two daughters, a mother, a father, and a dog living in the same house. The book is from the point of view of the eldest daughter. Basically, the girls have a day together with their dad. The girls wake him up, he shaves while they brush their teeth. He makes breakfast. Then it says, "After breakfast, we quietly sneak out of the house. Daddy says Mom needs a day t

The story was a little dull. "We did this, then we did this, then we did this, then we did this, then we did this, then we did this, then we did this, and the we said goodnight"

Summary: This book was really cute. It was about two little girls who spend a day of fun with their dad. I wouldn't say it is one of my favorites. The story was touching but it seemed a tad dull. One thing that caught my attention was the illustrations. They were very bright and fun. It is definitely for a younger audience, probably between

My daughter picked this book because of the cover: a picture of a dad and two girls. She liked all the silly things the sisters did with their Dad.

This is a beautifully illustrated day of fun for two sweet little girls. It's nice to see a book about a dad and his daughters having fun together.

I can't say I'm impressed.. The narration feels off. Or I feel funny about the entire thing. The illustrations are great, very well done to illustrate the story, but not the greatest picture book I've read lately.

Frankie and her little sister Violet get to spend some time with their Dad while their Mom rests. Their Dad cooks for them, takes them to the park, and even has a tea party with them. It is beautifully illustrated. I liked how the dad and girls interacted together. It was a good book!

Another famous person writes a book. It is ok but nothing special. The pictures are the best part of this. It is just what two girls do in a day I could find about 5 more I like better with this same idea. Ages 2+

A book about two sisters and their day spent with their dad. Cute pictures and story, but not sure how this would benefit my classroom.

This is a cute fun children's book. It doesn't really have a moral, but the illustrations are great and the story is fun.

Maybe celebrities should just let their kids write the picture books, that might make the books readable.
